Oklahoma City Police spokesman Jermaine Johnson told ABC News that Duncan threatened to “take down the plane.”

According to police, Duncan made “terroristic threats.”

Police told ABC News Duncan was exhibiting signs of mental illness and was taken to the hospital after complaining of chest pain.

Delta Airlines issued a statement saying, “Thanks to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 1730 (LAX to ATL) who assisted in detaining an unruly passenger as the flight diverted to Oklahoma City (OKC). The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement.”

“We apologize to our customers for the delay and any additional inconvenience this caused.”

A passenger on the flight, Ali Burns, tweeted, “Someone tried hijacking our plane from LAX to ATL. … The man made an announcement that we needed to be close to our oxygen masks & proceeded to try & open the door. They then called all the ‘strong men’ to the front of the plane to restrain him.

“We ended up landing in OKC as it was the closest airport to us.”

Burns later added, “Update: he was trying to open the door to the outside, not the cockpit.”

A video posted by a passenger, Steve Denton, shows flight crew and passengers struggling with Duncan and holding him down.

Darren Genet, one of the passengers who assisted, told ABC News there was a “fracas” and he and other passengers “swooped in” to help restrain Duncan. “We’re holding him down and he was screaming and crying,” Genet told the news network. “And then one of the gentlemen on the flight was a Marine, and he came over and they got the restraints, and we kind of all held him down until we got the restraints on.”

“By then he was sort of apologizing.” An off-duty pilot also assisted, according to ABC News.

Genet added, “It was pretty scary. We were just really fortunate that we were able to get this guy down.”

Duncan remains in custody at the Oklahoma County Jail, but Oklahoma court records do not show any charges filed against him.
